    He never lived up to his contract.

    If he were at the stage of maturity that Randy Moss was late in his career, I'd want him on the Lions, but I think he's still a ways off from that, sadly.

    End of an era for sure. He had his moments but always left you wanting more. Think he'll sign with a team quickly though.

    As a Cowboys fan this is a sad day, can't say that I'm surprised. Stephen Jones and Scott Linehan have wanted this since the start of the off-season but Jerry has been trying to talk them out of it.

    Best of luck to Dez, I think he can still be an impact player. He wont have to wait long as he'll have many options

    He's dropped off but wouldn't mind the Packers taking a flyer on him.

    Good move by the Cowboys. Good, but way overrated. Sounds like he certainly wasn't worth it off the field as well.

    He has fallen off and wasn't earning that contract so it makes sense but the timing of it is odd.

    Sums up the situation quite clearly.

    Maybe Giants trade OBJ for picks and sign Dez. LOL

    I mean I disagree with the cut from the Cowboys perspective.

    As shown in the video, too much blame was put on his shoulders.

    When has that ever been a problem for Jerrah in Dallas?

    Bryant is going to pull a Richard Sherman and sign with a NFC East rival. Washington is my bet.

    I kind of wonder if he will have a bit of a revival on a new team where he is going to be playing for a new contract and to prove he's still great.

    In Dallas, he was coddled and was the king. He dropped passes, and his fans blamed the QB (see above). He ran sloppy routes, and people blamed the QB. He lost much of his explosiveness, and yeah, you see where this is going...

    I think the team was just tired of dealing with him. With his big drop in performance, they didn't want to keep him around.

    So he can take turns with B Marsh in dropping easy passes?

    I wonder if the Pats take a look to try and match him up alongside Edelman and Hogan.
